    A great new version of one of the most beloved classic Gamecube Games.

    Luigi’s Mansion proves that there’s still life in the 3DS, even as the Switch seems positioned to become its replacement. This version is so much more than a look at a title from that past. We’re getting to play a lost piece of Nintendo’s history; a game that was originally designed for 3D, but was never fully realised due to the limitations of the technology at the time. After nearly two decades, we're playing Luigi's Mansion as it was originally intended, and it is as fun now as it was when the GameCube launched.

    Some gameplay elements are outdated, and controls in Nintendo 3DS could be better, but it is still a classic, and you should try it.

    Fifteen years after its initial release on GameCube, Luigi's Mansion comes to the 3DS with a few new features, but those can't make up for the fact that the game is too short, and offers no interest for players who have already played it. On the other hand, if you haven't played it yet, this is the version to go for.

    Luigi's Mansion is a fun exploratory adventure game that remains pretty enjoyable despite some annoying control issues and design anachronisms. A full remake that embraced a more modern and polished battle system along with better puzzle design would have made it even better.

    If you really really loved the original, or feel you missed out on a bit of history not playing it at the time, then this game will have something for you. Ultimately this version of Luigi’s Mansion would be better off being left in the time capsule it was pulled out of.

It´s looks like the Critic Pages see a remake like a new game, saying this is the same blah blah blah... This is a remake no a new game, obviously it added some new features, but only because its the same, don´t means it needs a lower score. I recommend only see user-based experience when is a remake, because the critic page will give it a different rating just because is the same. This is my opinion... Expand

    This Luigi's Mansion game is exactly like the one you just (or should have) played 17 years ago. Whereas the Luigi's Mansion game on theThis Luigi's Mansion game is exactly like the one you just (or should have) played 17 years ago. Whereas the Luigi's Mansion game on the GameCube manages to become a very great game to collect in your average GameCube collection, this Luigi's Mansion game has missed opportunities to add more features to distinguish it from being another generic port with nothing new added and give it more replay value. In short terms, there's hardly anything new added to the game to make it more than just Luigi's Mansion on the 3DS. Expand
